Keker, Van Nest & Peters has been named the Litigation Department of the Year by The American Lawyer. The firm is a repeat champion, having won the honor two of the three times it has been awarded.
According to the magazine, "Keker, Van Nest & Peters may be considerably smaller than most of the firms it goes up against, but it gets big results. Those results include defending Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong in a $100 million False Claims Act case that settled for a small fraction of that sum; winning a nationwide injunction against President Trump’s attempt to defund sanctuary jurisdictions; and obtaining a settlement on behalf of Lyft that allows its drivers to remain classified as independent contractors. When it comes to litigation, the firm shows that size isn’t everything."
